According to GLOBAL PINOY, Parañaque, the city of Novena Mecca (Baclaran, home of the famous Redemptorist Church) of Metro Manila, is a small town north of Pasay City, southeast of Muntinlupa, southwest of Las Piñas and the majestic bay of Manila on the west. It’s a highly developed city composed of 16 barangays.
Being a small town by the sea, the district was under the control of “Cabeza de Barangay”. The townspeople lived thru rice planting, salt making, weaving and shoe-making. The place was then called Palanyag, which means my beloved. Then came a miscommunication between a Filipino rig driver and a Spaniard. The latter ordered the driver to stop the carriage “para aqui”, and spoke in Spanish. Another passenger who known that language elaborate it and said “para aniya aaui”. Because the driver did not know any Spanish, he thought that it was name of the town. From then on, the town was known as “Parañaque”.
(the following are my words..)
Some of the families that have lived here for generations would still refer to it as Palanyag and there are festivals held in "her" honor.
The city is filled with second hand stores (from clothes, gadgets, cars...you name it, we have it), shopping malls, movie houses, grocery stores, lots of subdivisions, restaurants, handicrafts, pet stores, churches, et cetera, etcetera.
It's also the home of two of the largest memorial parks in Metro Manila (believe me, Memorial Parks are a big deal here most especially during the month of November)
